Een familie in een Vlaams dorp aan het begin van de 20e eeuw wordt geregeerd door drie ongetrouwde, rijke en kwezelachtige zusters.
Matt Brennan, a brilliant young investment banker in the City of London, is celebrating his greatest deal yet: orchestrating a mega-merger that will transform the electronics industry.
He is rich and successful beyond his wildest hopes. But his personal life is a mess. Fed up with his constant work, his wife is about to walk out on him. And he is plagued by mysterious dreams ...of the Inquisition. When Matt travels to Carcassonne in Southern France to buy a house he hopes will put his marriage and his life back together, he is plunged into the mysteries of the Cathar Sect, a fanatical branch of mediaeval Catholicism also known as the 'the Perfects'. As he unlocks their secrets, his life is at stake.
And Matt Brennan is about to discover that no man, and no religion, is ever perfect. 'Almost Perfect' is an enthralling thriller that straddles the centuries with consummate skill. It combines the plotting of Dan Brown, with the action of Steve Berry, and historical knowledge of Kate Mosse, and the story-telling of Lee Child. 'A knock-out book. John Childress is at the top of his game.” - Matt Lynn, author of the best-selling Death Force thrillers. “A brilliant, thrilling combination of the ancient and modern.” - Tom Kasey, best-selling author of Trade Off.

This volume brings together three series of short stories by F.
Scott Fitzgerald - the Basil Duke Lee stories of 1928 29, the Josephine Perry stories of 1930 31, and the Gwen Bowers stories of 1936. The texts published here are based on surviving typescripts that preserve Fitzgerald's final revisions for their first publication in the Saturday Evening Post.
Collations have revealed cuts and revisions by the Post editors aimed at removing profanity and blasphemy, sexual innuendo, real names of people and places, and references to racial prejudice. These passages have been restored to the Cambridge texts. This volume includes a scholarly introduction, a record of variants, facsimiles and other illustrations, and an appendix that presents early endings for the stories 'The Captured Shadow' and 'Basil and Cleopatra'. Full historical notes identify popular songs, sports heroes, literary works, Broadway shows, and sources for the stories.
Although she had always liked her old friend Rene Moreau well enough, Jassy felt theirs had been a brother-sister relationship, no more, and she hadn't the slightest wish or intention of marrying him, as her stepfather Morgan was so forcefully trying to persuade her to do. And then Jassy met Max Bellmer and fell in love with him - and that was that; no possible chance of a match now between her and Rene. After all, what possible objection could her stepfather have to anyone as eligible as Max? And yet, it seemed, Morgan was not going to give up trying...
